that you are disappointed and if they don't act this time you will remember come election time. to the wide majority of nra households who supported this legislation you need to let your leadership and lobbyists in washington know they didn't represent your views on this one. the point is those who care deeply about preventing more and more gun violence will have to be as passionate and is organized and his vocal as those who blocked it -- the commonsense steps to help keep our children safe. ultimately you outnumbered those who argue the other way but they are better organized and they are better financed. they have been at it longer, and they make sure that they focus on this one issue during election and that is the reason why you can pass something that 90% of americans support and you can't get it through the senate or the house of representatives. to change washington used the american people are going to have to sustain some passion about this. when necessary you have to send the right people to washington and that requires strength and requires persistence and that's the one thing t

, the votes that were cast. votes have consequences just as elections do, and the people of america will remember our job now is to raise awareness, spread the rage that we feel, raise the rage and organize and enable and empower citizens to be heard and heeded by this body, whether in the next election or before then, and my hope is that it will be before then because we must act before the next election, and that action is an opportunity, a historic moment that we must seize. not everyone in this body turned its back on the victims of newtown or on this cause yesterday, and there were genuine profiles in courage on this floor in this body. first and foremost, senator manchin who led the fight on background checks and forged a compromise that should have won the day. and republicans who chose to buck their own leadership and follow their hearts and consciences, senators mccain, collins, kirk and toomey. the american people will thank you. and there are democrats who took some tough votes. tough votes particularly for their states. and i want to thank senators hagan, casey, landrieu

call upon for advice on how as an elected official to deal with a tragedy of this mag tiewtd. i could call my friends in arizona, or i could call my friends in colorado or call up my new colleague governor kaine from virginia. there were too many places to turn. and it had happened to us in connecticut in the place that we never, ever thought would be subject to gun violence. and so we're finally after this tipping point having a debate about what we can do. and through all of the back-and-forth this week and last about whether we would have a vote on this floor, could brie wee overcome a filibuster, could we come to a ties comiez on background checks, would we add to that high-capacity magazines, underneath it all are these thousands of victims, little girls and boys in newtown but 16 and 17 and 31 and 68-year-olds from across the country who have been gunned down over the course of the last several decades. without this body raising a finger to try to make things different. well, it time for those victims' stories to be told. and so as i did last week, i'm going to come down to the
